Join us in majestic Sedona, Arizona for a deep dive into the ritual rhythms and dances of Cuba and Brazil. Guided by world-class facilitators and held in the sacred red rock landscape, explore the innate path of healing through these sacred movements and music. Together, we discover how embodying the polyrhythms, deities, and elemental forces of nature both connects us to all and liberates our souls.
In an intimate group, we will dance, sing, play, hike, receive, explore, and journey together and in our own personal way. Emerge with a new level of embodiment of these sacred rhythms, feeling renewal, connectivity, and reverence for all things.
Sedona has been a destination for healing, ceremony, and ritual since the time of the First Peoples. The picturesque red rocks provide an ideal setting to connect with nature, create sacred space and allow personal transformation. The unique mineral-rich landscape provides an amplification of our experiences, both seen and unseen - calling forth a potent mirror from which to learn and grow.
All levels of dance experience are welcome!
For experienced dancers, expect to:
Take your level of embodiment of the essence of these rhythms to the next level
Receive individual feedback for advancing your practice
Stretch your edges to new areas of exploration
